London (ANI): Avatar director James Cameron feels he might not be
able to win the Oscars. The helmer insisted that his ex-wife
Kathryn Bigelow"s film 'The Hurt Locker", which is also in the
running, has strong chances of triumphing. "I always believe it's
very unlikely that lightning will strike twice," the Mirror quoted
him as telling Empire magazine, in an interview before the Oscar
nominations were announced.
He added: "Hurt Locker is a very, very strong picture. Of the
contenders that are being bandied about it, it's definitely the
strongest. "Certainly it's Kathryn's moment. I'm certain she'll get
nominated and I would happily lose to her. "I've already got one of
those damn statues. I'd be p***ed off if somebody else won, but I
wouldn't mind if she won."
Referring to the moment he exclaimed "I''''m king of the world"
when he landed the best director gong for Titanic in 1998, Cameron
said: "If we get nominated, I believe it's very unlikely that we
will win because I made such a jackass of myself last time.
“Although there might be some curiosity about what I might do."
Avatar has been nominated in nine categories at the Oscars.
